A special charity Christmas fair will be taking place over the weekend to continue raising money for Lowestoft youngster Cohen Messenger.

In recent months the town has rallied around the two year-old, who suffers from cerebral palsy, and helped his family raise money to purchase a wheelchair which will vastly improve his quality of life.

Organiser Jules Davis is now staging a charity craft fair at Livingstones Pub and Restaurant, in White’s Lane, Kessingland, to continue raising money for other vital equipment.

Cohen also suffers from uncontrolled epilepsy, dystonia, vocal cord palsy, and central apnea.

Mrs Davis, who has taken part in previous fundraising events for Cohen, said: “It is important for the community to come together and help when it can.

“If we can make someone’s life a little bit easier, then why not do it?”

The fair, which will have a variety of hand crafted items on sale, takes place from 9am to 3pm on Sunday, November 26.
